Dublin to Waterford and on…

Pembroke DockTrains, busses and a ferry from Dublin through Wexford to Waterford and on to Pembroke Dock.

Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland – a quaint harbor town lined with pastel buildings and known for Waterford Crystal.  Invaded by the Vikings in 914 A.D. – a quick overnight for us on our way to Wales.  We stayed the night in the birth place of Thomas Francis Meagher born in 1823 who led an Irish Brigade to help Lincoln in the Civil War and later became the first governor of Montana.

About Paige Shaw

Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago - I have become an eyewitness to and documenter of the world’s divergent cultures (92 countries and counting). Photographing vistas that take my breath away, extraordinary architecture and connecting with everyday people doing everyday things. I am constantly reminded that a smile is the same in any language, that making a connection with something so simple is beautiful. Watching my photography transform from using a point and shoot in the old days to the new love of my life - the incredible Sony a7rii mirrorless camera - has inspired me to do more, take chances and seek out the unknown. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, skier, scuba diver and gypsy. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso

      We did stroll through the Waterford store. You should see their chandeliers – they are breathtaking and pricey!!! Bill loves the weight of their glasses.
